The Chimneys at Bevingdean Copse is situated to the south of the village opposite the beautiful Chailey Common. A nearby pedestrian gate gives access onto Memorial Common, it is lowland heath, a nature reserve and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

In total The Common consists of approximately 450 acres of lowland heath divided by tracks giving access to private properties. It provides a truly incomparable environment for delightful walks where on a fine day the South Downs can be seen stretching from Lewes to the east to the Jack and Jill Windmills at Clayton to west and beyond.

Haywards Heath to the west offers a wide range of amenities including a new Waitrose store and a wonderful selection of restaurants. It also has an excellent mainline railway link to London where frequent trains provide easy access to London Victoria (approximate journey time 50 minutes) and London Bridge (approximate journey time 62 minutes).

The historic County Town of Lewes, is approximately 7.5 miles to the south, offers a fantastic place to spend time in. The beauty of the town's architectural heritage interplays with both the River Ouse as it meanders through the town centre and the South Downs National Park which provides a dramatic backdrop to the townscape. Lewes is a unique shopping and leisure destination, offering a wide range of local shops, independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants.

The area is extremely well served by schools with Chailey and Newick both having primary schools and the highly praised Chailey senior school. Its GCSE results are considered to be excellent and is thought to have been sustained year on year with students achieving well above expected progress. As a result, the school is understood to have been chosen to be the English Hub and Modern Foreign Languages Hub for East Sussex.
